By welcoming diversity, our people are able to continuously discover creative new ideas, which has given us the ability to develop ground-breaking technologies. If you are also passionate about creating the type of transformative technology that will enable innovators to design and build a better world, come and join us!

OverviewThis is an exceptional opportunity to join a rapidly growing IoT startup and play a highly important role in our global expansion. Our group has its headquarters in Japan, and you will be involved in the global side of the business outside Japan, working closely with legal counsels from both Japan and the US as well as diverse team members stationed all around the world. In a rapidly changing business environment, you'll be exposed to various types of work. We encourage remote work, so you can work from anywhere in the United Kingdom.

The RoleWe operate globally and must constantly face myriad new regulations from diverse jurisdictions. Therefore, researching laws and regulations of each country with outside legal counsel and maintaining internal operations compliance with such regulations in tandem with relevant team members will be primary requirements for your role. The successful applicant might be involved in a range of contract management activities, including drafting and negotiating contracts, provided your skills, experiences, and interest align. For this role, you will work closely with a very small team, where you will have full exposure to a range of commercial legal tasks. We are looking for a passionate person who is willing to challenge themselves and expand outside their comfort zone in order to solve novel issues in a variety of markets.
